The Infinity Scarf

I love scarves to begin with, but the infinity scarf is even a notch above all other scarves. It's such a simple concept, but genius at the same time. You probably know what one is, however if you don't, I will describe it here for you. It is a scarf that is a continuous loop, usually long in length, to allow multiple loops to be layered around the neck. It may appear to be part of the blouse or shirt you are wearing beneath it. Infinity scarves can be made out of long narrow scarves that you already have, square scarves pieced together, and t-shirts. They can also be crocheted, knitted and made from scratch with material that does not fray. Making infinity scarves is a quick DIY project that you will be glad you did.

Converting Regular Scarves to Infinity Scarves

If you have a large amount of scarves like I do, you can easily convert them into infinity scarves.

The easiest conversions are the long narrow scarves. All you will need to do is sew the ends together with a thread color that matches the scarf. To create the lovely hanging loop around the neck, you will need to turn one end before sewing.

If you have square-shaped scarves, you can sew different scarves together to create a long narrow piece. Then you will attach the ends together creating a continuous loop. These patchwork scarves can have a creative whimsical-look that is very appealing.

Creating An Infinity Scarf From Scratch

If creating an infinity scarf from scratch, you will need to select fabric that doesn't fray (this will mean that you won't have to sew the edges under, saving much time).

T-shirt infinity scarves are a no-sew, fun and easy style. There are multiple ways to make these. My favorite way is shown in the video below.

Crocheted or knitted infinity scarves are wonderful because they not only have the continuous loop but they have texture too. They are super-warm in winter as well. If you know how to knit or crochet then make an infinity scarf one of your new projects. They would make great gifts too.

      Great suggestions for creating infinity scarves. A recent graduate of University of Georgia has started her own business making infinity scarves from material made by women in Ghana. Her scarves are beautiful.

      Voted your article up.

      That is pretty. I had no idea what those scarves were called. I love how they look like part of the shirt when made in a similar color. Great hub!
